Follow Friday: Ask the dietitian


I’m writing a monthly column for Rustik Magazine, titled: Ask the Dietitian. Check out my first contribution on staying healthy during the flu season. If you have any questions you’d like to see addressed in the column, or any blog topics, feel free to comment below or send me an email: dmc555 [at] gmail [dot] com. Have a great weekend!


Follow Friday: Food swaps


My mum recently sent me a link to this local blog post about hosting successful food swaps. Ever since I heard about food swaps from Zahra at Rustik Magazine a few months back, I’ve thought that they sounded like a pretty great idea. I have yet to get around to attempting to organize one myself (I’ll let you know if I ever do). If you’re interested in organizing one the blog post above is a great place to start and if you’re in the Halifax area feel free to send an invite my way!
